Athlone News celebrates 30 years

The Athlone News turns 30 years old this year and to celebrate reaching this milestone, we will put together a special anniversary edition, which will be published at the end of September.

If you are turning 30 this year, or if you’re celebrating your 30th wedding anniversary, we’d love to hear from you – and maybe even feature you in the special edition.

We’d also like to hear from longstanding residents of the areas covered by Athlone News. Take a walk down memory lave with us and tell us what the area was like 30 years ago. What has changed and what hasn’t? What are your fondest memories of the area? We also invite schools and community organisations to share their memories with us.

And because we all love looking at pictures, now’s a great time to dig out your images of yesteryear and share them with us.

To contribute to our special edition, call the newsroom at 021 488 4230 or you can send an email to verna.vandiemen@inl., with “Athlone News anniversary” in the subject line. To advertise in the souvenir edition, please contact Abigail Wilmot at abigail.wilmot@inl. or 021 488 4244.
